Making a ducted dust-collection system in my shed

Dust collection in any woodworking shop is almost a must have – unless you like wearing face masks all the time – or are happy to die prematurely.

But, maybe you can’t afford one of those 5-horsepower cyclone jobbies you see in all the best YouTubers’ videos.

If you can’t afford the best, then maybe you could make-n-do with one of the worst YouTubers on YouTube – me.

Watch as I build a semi-permanent semi-functional ducted dust-collection system in my put-away shop during last year’s COVID-19 lockdown, then tackle an upgrade during this year’s second-wave ‘forced-holiday’.


Make-n-Do is the CONTACT Editor’s personal ‘playlist’ on the CONTACT YouTube Channel, where the philosophy is making do with the tools and materiel I have and making and doing as an escape from the computer (though, ironically, the video editing then ties me to the computer for almost as many hours as I spent Make-n-Do in the shed in the first place ? )
